    • Source Code Style & Cleanness
      • Compiler Warnings: See Committer Howto
        • When you change a code, please make it warning-free before checkin (but dont go and chase compilerwarnings yet)
        • Target VM is Java-1.4 with the satandard settings (i.e. no assert unless set up in
      • Code Ownership -- See (and edit) DSDP/TM/Code Ownership
      • Code Style and Format -- defer to next week
    • Change Requests -- defer to next week
    • Features: Jakarta-commons, JUnit-framework, Discovery, EFS-Experimental, WR-Terminal (bug 152826)
      • Jakarta-commons still important for Symbian
      • Discovery: Martin to hook up with Javier directly for initial checkin
    • Refactorings: DaveM did most important stuff; consider "finished" for now, continue with hi-pri bugs
      • Martin to fix ISV docs and document the changes in build notes
      • Subsystem Factory vs. Configuration: Please rename *factory to *configuration whenever you see it (Javadoc, local variables, parameter names)
    • API Things
      • Martin did some minor extension point cleanup (rename), see build notes of N-builds
      • Service Error Reporting - bug 149472 - DaveD - API ok so far, final resolution? --> Create new different bug id for that one.

          • Example: 1 Host providing shell and FTP (different categories)
          • Problem: createHost() only creates a host with 1 service -- See video for service discovery, DaveM to take a look at it
          • Need createHost() with a list of services
          • Look at this again next week
      • Making stuff internal - ssh, ftp: Martin; Core: List of candidates from DaveD?
